Media Advisory: Wake Forest University Board of Trustees approves tuition for 2013-2014

The Wake Forest University Board of Trustees approved raising undergraduate tuition by 3.5 percent for the 2013-2014 academic year during its winter meeting on Feb. 8.

Undergraduate tuition will increase from the current $42,700 to $44,200 next year. The decision reflects a determined effort to keep tuition increases low. For the fourth year in a row, the University has kept the rate of cost increases below 4 percent.

“Wake Forest has long maintained a proud tradition of opportunity,” said President Nathan O. Hatch. “This tuition increase comes with careful consideration about spending restraints as we continually strive to balance financial aid and academic resources to assure the highest level of educational quality.”

With changes in room, board and other fees, the overall cost of attendance is expected to increase 3.4 percent to $60,242.
